Usually rsyslog or syslog-ng are used for that. I guess most linux distributions ship with one of those 2 installed by default as the OS' syslog engine. You can simply add config to spin up one or more extra instances for your syslog data feeds.

Yes, you can set up multiple servers running rsyslog/syslog-ng and put a network load balancer in front of them. Or use tools like keepalived.
